I have used a couple of abbreviations that some of you may not understand:
If you see d: ca, this indicates that the death date given was a guess made by some earlier compilers of cemetery info.
From the 2002
Included in the publication with each burial is the Block & Lot number (if known) of each grave for easy location. If unknown, you will find I have noted it as " *Grave site unknown". Also noted in the society's publication is the name of the funeral home who handled the internment and if you wish this info, contact the Union County Genealogical Society or Barton Library & request they look up that info in the book for you.
Because of restrictions on my time in trying to put together a good research survey, I did not feel I had the time to always list Funeral Home (if known) nor the Block and Lot identification. Occasionally, you will find some listed.
*I get frequent letters from individuals wanting to know why some
relative of theirs, that is buried in
Insertion of *ARDI next to someone on this list, means I have obtained the month and day of death from the “Arkansas Death Index 1914-1950”. Some dates have been filled in using Social Security Death Index & are noted as *SSDI. Unless it is a typo all the info here came from (1) an Obituary (2) a tombstone (3)Union County Arlington Cemetery 2002 publication (4) & a few from personal records.
* FH ................Funeral Home or Mortuary
*OB .................Information from obituary
*d:ca ................approximate death date / came from funeral home, so it could be burial date
*WC ................ may also be listed as buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, adjoins Arlington
*Grave site unknown: means the info obtained from the local funeral homes/ mortuaries did not have the Block and Lot numbers for the grave OR grave has no marker & could not be found
* Unknown given in place of person's given name, means all that was on marker or funeral home records was the last name & one partial date. Sometimes I have tried to look these up & fill in (speculation) the possible first name.
Any and all that I filled in using Social Security Death Index are strictly a guess & speculation on my part. Nor do I assert that this survey list is without error, but I have tried to the best of my ability to provide any & all info that might be helpful to a genealogy researcher.
2010 Update: Using my collection & Virgil Sims collection of obits; my personal surveys; and information from the “ARLINGTON CEMETERY “ BOOK 10 ~ Union County, Arkansas ~ [September 2002] ~ compiled and published by the Union County Genealogical Society, El Dorado, Arkansas (2002), I was able to add more data to this compilation. This is about as complete as I can make this survey. I will not be making additional updates or corrections to this cemetery....I have to end it sometime somewhere.
*Please remember that Woodlawn Cemetery & Arlington Memorial Park Cemetery are joined together & there is not a distinct division of the two, Sometimes people are listed in both cemeteries. For this reason there is frequent confusion on which cemetery someone is buried in.
